Advantages: Nice smell
Disadvantages: Messy to use
Intrigue rather than aesthetics made me buy this product as I had enevr before considerd buying a scrub especially for the lips so it was curiosity that prompted the purchase and certainly not the way thius product looks as while the outer packaging is nice and stylish the contents inside reminded me of mushy peas that had been mushed some more and algae from a pond combined together. Fortunately it smells a lot better than it looks thanks to the lime essence. Price wise a 25ml pot of this product will set you back £4.75 so it is not cheap, especially considering what you get and the specialist nature of the product.
You simply massage the product into your lips to leave them feeling smooth and healthy, the product is predominantly coarse sugar which provides the exfoliating qualities and while there is a certain novelty value to this product I cannot say that I have noticed a significant difference other than it giving me a sugar craving or the desire to drink a tropical cocktail.
It did leave my lips feeling quite refreshed and nourished, this is down to the oils in the product but it also leaves my lips with a tingly sensation and that was not something I found to be very pleasant at all. I found it awkward to apply this product, it becomes too runny and is not easy to apply even with the benefit of a mirror, I found I needed to have something to stop it going everywhere.
Personally this is a product that I struggle to recommend, it does not deliver any special results, the tingly feeling is not something that I particularly liked and it is really messy to use. The only plus factors is that it does have some nourishing qualities and it smells lovely but these alone are not enough to have me wanting to buy this product from Lush again. Two stars only from me.
